Prepare yourselves, fans of Seirei Gensouki, for its comeback! Here is everything you need to know about Seirei Gensouki season 2 release date, trailer, story, and news.
Seirei Gensouki or Spirit Chronicle is getting a second season! Sadly, that’s all we know for now.
The first season left us with a terrible cliffhanger that made us crave for more. This second season is a blessing that will continue the journey of Haruto.
What will he face in the next season? Let’s find out!
Seirei Gensouki Season 2 Release Date
The second installment of Seirei Gensouki was announced on November 5, 2021.
It’s hard to tell how the first season performed. It received mixed reviews from fans and critics alike.
But, the series prevailed and managed to get a second season. Or maybe it’s an apology for the abrupt ending of the first season?
Well, let’s wait for the second season to air before judging it.
It might also be because the studio TMS Entertainment felt some obligation. They opened a crowdfunding campaign on July 16, 2021. They prepared merchandise related to the anime.
Their goal was 5 million yen, but the fans’ love exceeded their expectations. By the time it closed, the fund reached 9.2 million yen.
Despite all that, no news has been shared since the announcement.
The 23rd volume of the light novel was released on February 1, 2023. We hope to get some new information along with the light novel release.
The earliest estimate for the release is in the summer of 2023. We can only wait for more news to come. In the meantime, just hang in there.
Seirei Gensouki Season 2 Trailer
The trailer for the second season of Seirei Gensouki: Spirit Chronicles was released along with the announcement of its production. It recaps the events of the first season, showing Haruto’s journey from his tragic death to his reincarnation as Rio, a boy with a mysterious past and a powerful spirit. No new scenes are revealed in the trailer, leaving fans in suspense about what will happen next.
The studio TMS Entertainment and the cast for the second season have not been confirmed yet, but the announcement suggests that they will be the same as the first season. Fans are eagerly waiting for more news and updates about Seirei Gensouki Season 2, which promises to be an exciting continuation of the isekai adventure.
Seirei Gensouki Story
In typical isekai fashion, Seirei Gensouki centers around a protagonist reincarnated into a different world after a traffic accident. However, what sets this anime apart is its focus on identity crisis.
The story follows Amakawa Haruto, who made a promise to his childhood friend Ayaka Miharu before being separated from her. After years of maturing, he returns to his hometown for high school and reunites with Miharu, but freezes when he sees her with an unfamiliar man. The next day, Miharu disappears, leaving Haruto feeling regretful and spiritless for the rest of his high school life.
Years later, Haruto dies in a traffic accident and his soul is reborn as Rio, a slum kid who is bitter and vengeful after his mother was killed in front of him. Rio struggles with his identity and wonders if he is Rio or Haruto, especially in a warring state period where the value of life is cheap and modern morality contradicts his own.
The first season follows Haruto as he resolves to avenge his mother and vows to kill Lucius, the man who killed his parents. However, his resolve is tested when he reunites with Miharu, who had been transferred to another world four years before his death in Japan.
